Example Poem
 
My poet never lets me run and play 
and crash and boom and flash the room and flirt. 
“Wear this! “, he says, and not the mini-skirt. 
“A sonnet form?  No take that thing away. 

You say you won’t undress me like your whore. 
I want to tease and titillate, you jerk 
this rigid form I will not wear to work! 
I won’t set one small iamb out that door.” 

“Look you most silly filly of a verse, 
I could wrap your fine curves in something worse-  
a double dactyl or a free verse cough. 
Try this, for me today and make me proud, 

if you do that, tonight you’ll be allowed 
to loosen this, or maybe take it off. “
